Voting Record

Missed Votes

From Mar 1901 to Mar 1913, Foster missed 507 of 1,081 roll call votes, which is 46.9%. This is much worse than the median of 29.5% among the lifetime records of senators serving in Mar 1913. The chart below reports missed votes over time.

We don’t track why legislators miss votes, but it’s often due to medical absenses, major life events, and running for higher office.
